Last December we rented a condo in Windsor Hills, a popular community off Irlo Bronson Highway. Because we have young twins, we needed to rent two cribs and a few other items to make our short stay more comfortable. After comparing prices and equipment, we settled on Orlando Crib Rental because they seemed to have the best selection and prices. They have Pack-N-Plays, standard-sized cribs, and toddler beds, as well as mid-priced strollers (think Graco, not Bugaboo), car seats, and high chairs. We even rented a white noise machine for the kids’ room.
Because the owner has a working relationship with the agency we rented the condo from, All Star Vacation Homes, she was able to deliver the cribs to our room and start setting them up before we even got there rather than leaving it at the front desk. The cribs were white metal cribs with standard crib mattresses ; you may want to bring your own sheets from home if you’re children are used to a certain type or if you want to avoid the cost of renting them. They folded easily, but were very sturdy once set up. The owner explained that she replaces them frequently because they get a lot of wear and tear being set up and taken down so often. She then showed me where she usually places them–thoughtfully, away from the windows and blinds–and even figured out how to get two cribs into the room while still being able to walk around the existing furniture.
Our trip was a short one and to be honest, it was pretty difficult as the twins did not sleep well and picked that weekend to rebel against the stroller. By the time the owner came to our condo to pick up the cribs, I was exhausted and I’m sure it showed. We talked for a while and it turns out she’s not only a mother of five, she also has twins. Coming from a veteren twin mom, her words of advice and funny stories that day really made my trip. I’m still laughing about the story of her then-toddler twins, a jug of milk, a bathing suit, and the cat’s haircut.
I would recommend Orlando Crib Rentals to anyone. They were easy to reach via email or by phone and answered all my questions quickly. The service was super-friendly and I felt they went above and beyond what I would have expected.
